Candidate Testimonials

“I’ve found the professionalism and close attention that BAS gives throughout the recruitment process a real help at a time when stress levels can be high, and you quite often have disappointments before you manage to secure a position. They work with you, not you for them or them for you - it’s a partnership .”

“Bayman and "sisters" have been fabulous in the 3 key areas of Interim Assignments: 1) Assistance in securing new assignments by their excellent communications. 2) Top class administrative support during assignment. 3) When things went astray through no fault of theirs, by their positive and human intervention and support.”

“I am happy to give first class testimonials for both Tracy Topping and Claire Bayman. They are both outstanding recruitment consultants, friendly, helpful and professional. Tracy, placed me when she worked for Hays and helped me through all the details of IR35 compliance and setting up a PSC. Nothing was too much trouble for her and after I started she kept in touch to make sure things were going ok. Claire placed me again last year and similarly helped me through issues around IR35 although in the end that became irrelevant. She is a good listener and helped structure an on payroll package which took account of my needs whilst meeting the business requirements of the client. I would like to record my appreciation of their outstanding professionalism and to say how much I enjoy my engagements with them. They really do make you feel valued and if I had to recommend recruitment consultants both Claire and Tracy would be top of my list.”

“I did enjoy my recent temporary assignment of which a great proportion was due to Bayman Atkinson and Smythe, in particular, Sarah Costin’s weekly calls to ensure that everything was going smoothly and that I had all the support I needed. Having had contact with several other recruitment agencies, I would consider yours to be one of the best. I could not fault the communication and information provided. Thank you for all your assistance. “

“BAS has fully supported me through my search for my next role. I had specific requirements, quite a list, Jane listened and acted on these. Even when placed in a temp to perm role Jane was always on hand for advice or just to chat over how things were going. Jane always acted in my best interests, continually professional and personable all at the same time. I would highly recommend BAS to anyone looking to make their next career move.”

“I have known Claire for a long time, and she always goes the extra mile in supporting me during the job-hunting phase(s) and due to her charisma, she helped me secure my current and prior role.  I would also like to say a big thank you to Tracy who provided the extra support during the highs and lows during job hunting phase.  Overall, Bayman Atkinson Smythe have provided me with a professional service to the highest standard”. 

“I’ve had the fantastic experience of working with both Tracy and Claire. Tracy recruited me in a previous life and working with her is a first-class experience, couldn’t ask for better. Have never actually met Claire, but she recruited me for my most recent position. Our communication has been by phone but very easy and straightforward to deal with. Tracy and Claire are my favourite recruiters, friendly, straightforward and unlike others I have dealt with, they actually know what they’re doing. Always a pleasure to deal with.” - Finance Director

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Claire in securing my new job. She is kind, communicative, and honest, and throughout the whole process, I always felt like a partner with her rather than just another CV. It was obvious from the way the recruitment journey had been devised that Claire and the team really understood what my new employer needed. BAS is a true model of what recruitment agencies can and should be. I wish the whole team every success in the future as you continue to grow.” - Finance Business Partner

“Well, I have lost count of the number of recruiters I have dealt with in my career - usually looking for staff but also my own career moves. Tracy is absolutely in a league of her own. She helped me find my perfect position, really added value on how I could excel in each recruitment stage, and showed a genuine enthusiasm for the entire process.  Tracy and I met in person shortly before lockdown, but the entirety of the recruitment process thereafter was done remotely which was obviously novel and disorientating. Every point of contact was helpful and reassuring when so often it's the case that recruiters go in for the hard sell. Hopefully, it'll be a while before I need recruitment services again personally, but I would thoroughly recommend BAS to anyone looking to recruit or be recruited.” - FD

“I've always found Claire to be extremely proactive - she will contact me about potential opportunities, rather than me contacting her. She also thinks outside the box - identifying opportunities that might not exactly match my previous experience, but which share the same skillsets. I've enjoyed working with Claire in the past and will continue to do so in the future.  I would also definitely contact her if I were working for an organisation that was looking to recruit.” - Financial Controller

“From first meeting Claire, I was impressed by her knowledge of the industry, her passion for matching talent and skills to roles, and her professional approach.” - Finance Director
